India test-fires Agni-V ballistic missile having range of 5,000 km

Balasore, 16/12: Amidst heightened military tension along the India-China boundary in Arunachal Pradesh, India on Thursday successfully conducted a full-range trial of the inter-continental range ballistic missile Agni-5 besides launching a major air combat exercise in the North East involving multiple critical air-bases.



Though the Defence Ministry is silent on the Agni-5 test, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi tweeted about the missile firing describing the test as a historic milestone.


“India successfully test fires Agni- 5 intercontinental nuclear capable ballistic missile from Abdul Kalam Island. The missile will add great value to the defence and strengthen national security to a greater extent as it can travel 5,400 plus kilometres,” Joshi said.
